Proper wine etiquette requires one to swirl the glass and inhale the bouquet before tasting the cork. Enjoy pleasures worth the wait with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get a wine tasting for two at Crown Wine & Spirits (a $30 value). The outing includes the following:
- Admission for two to an upcoming tasting. All events are held from 7 p.m. until 9 p.m.
- Two souvenir wineglasses
- $5 credit toward any bottle of wine purchased at the tasting
Over the past half-century, Crown Wine & Spirits has expanded its presence from a single corner shop to more than 25 locations that feature exotic spirits, beer, and wine. Gourmet Experience tasting events uncork more than 40 fine wines and spirits as patrons swirl selected pours within a set of take-home glasses and sip other potions that might include specialty vodkas. Cheeses and other carefully paired gourmet nibbles prove that elegant drinking food goes far beyond little snowmen made from olives. Groupon holders smitten with a certain libation can apply a $5 credit toward the purchase of a full bottle.
Crown Wine & Spirits
It's hard to imagine that there's a libation out there that Crown doesn't carry. With a selection that spans vineyards, distilleries, and breweries from around the world, the bottles lining each location come from both small, artisan makers and those universally famed for their grapes or techniques. Home mixologists can cull inspiration for cocktails from a selection of top-shelf-brand mixers or pair their tipple of choice with gourmet snacks, from bush-pepper macadamia nuts to dirty martini party dip. But tastings may be the most distinctive thing about Crown Wine & Spirits. Whether customers stop in to try each location's daily offerings of wine or spirits—or for special tastings that cover dozens of wines, bourbons or beers—Crown's staff makes it easy to find a new favorite or to make up to your tongue for forgetting so many of its birthdays.
